The setup described here is a basic setup
that allows you to play discs using just the
cables supplied with the player. In this setup,
stereo audio is played through the speakers
in your TV.
• This player is equipped with copy
protection technology. Do not connect
this player to your TV via a VCR (or your
VCR via this player) using AV cables, as
the picture from this player will not
appear properly on your TV. (This player
may also not be compatible with some
combination TV/VCRs for the same
reason; refer to the manufacturer for
more information.)
1 Connect the VIDEO OUT and AUDIO
OUT jacks to a set of A/V inputs on your
TV.
Use the supplied audio/video cable, connect-
ing the red and white plugs to the audio
outputs and the yellow plug to the video
output. Make sure you match up the left and
right audio outputs with their corresponding
inputs for correct stereo sound.

• Before unplugging the player from the
power outlet, make sure you first switch
it into standby using either the front
panel STANDBY/ON button, or the

display.
• For the above reasons, do not plug this
player into a switched power supply
found on some amplifiers and AV
receivers.
Connecting using the S-Video
output
If your TV has an S-Video input, you can use
this instead of the standard (composite)
output for a better quality picture.
1 Use an S-Video cable (not supplied)

Connecting to an AV
receiver
To enjoy multichannel surround sound you
need to connect this player to an AV receiver
using a digital output. The DV-454 has both
coaxial and optical digital jacks; use which-
ever is convenient. The DV-350 has only a
coaxial jack.
In addition to a digital connection, we
recommend also connecting using the
stereo analog connection.
You’ll probably also want to connect a video
output to your AV receiver. You can use any
of the video outputs available on this player
(the illustration shows a standard (compos-
ite) connection).

• My TV doesn’t have any inputs to
connect the DVD player. How can I watch
DVDs?
Unfortunately, if your TV has no inputs
you can’t use this player with it.
• My VCR is already connected to my TV, so
there aren’t any spare inputs. What
should I do?
If all your TV’s inputs are already in use,
you can buy a video input selector from
an electronics store, which effectively
gives you more inputs.
• My TV only has one input for the sound.
What should I plug it into?
If you don’t mind mono sound, you can
buy a stereo RCA-to-mono RCA cable
from an electronics store. Connect the
stereo end to this player and the mono
end to your TV.
If you want stereo sound, connect this
player to your amplifier or stereo system
using a stereo audio cable.
• I connected the DVD player to my AV
receiver, and although the sound is fine,
there’s no picture. What did I do wrong?
Make sure that the type of video
connection from the DVD player to your
AV receiver is the same as that from the
receiver to your TV. Most AV receivers
won’t convert from one kind of connec-
tion to another.

you’ll need to use them when setting up the
player, using some of the playback features,
such as program play, and when making
more advanced settings for audio and video.
All the screens are navigated in basically the
same way, using the cursor buttons to
change the highlighted item and pressing

1 If the player isn’t already on, press

If you’re playing a DVD or Video CD, also turn
on your TV and make sure that it is set to the
correct video input.
2 Press 0 OPEN/CLOSE to open the disc
tray.
3 Load a disc.
Load a disc with the label side facing up,
using the disc tray guide to align the disc (if
you’re loading a double-sided DVD disc, load
it with the side you want to play face down).
4 Press 3 (play) to start playback.
If you’re playing a DVD or Video CD, a menu
may appear. See pages 25, 26 for how to
navigate these.
If you’re playing an MP3 disc, it may take a
few seconds before playback starts, depend-
ing on the complexity of the file structure on
the disc.
• After I load a DVD disc, it ejects automati-
cally after a few seconds!
Most likely, the disc is the wrong region
for your player. The region number
should be printed on the disc; check it
against the region number of the player
(which you can find on the rear panel).
See also page 9.
If the region number is OK, it may be
that the disc is damaged or dirty. Clean
the disc and look for signs of damage.
See also page 47.

• Why won’t the disc I loaded play?
First check that you loaded the disc the
right way up (label side up), and that it’s
clean and not damaged. See page 47
for information on cleaning discs.
If a disc loaded correctly won’t play, it’s
probably an incompatible format or disc
type, such as DVD-Audio or DVD-ROM.
See page 8 for more on disc
compatibility.
• I have a widescreen TV so why are there
black bars at the top and bottom of the
screen when I play some discs?
Some movie formats are such that even
when played on a widescreen TV, black
bars are necessary at the top and
bottom of the screen. This is not a
malfunction.
• I have a standard (4:3) TV and set the
player to show widescreen DVDs in pan &
scan format, so why do I still get black
bars top and bottom with some discs?
Some discs override the display
preferences of the player, so even if you
have 4:3 (Pan & Scan) selected, those
discs will still be shown in letterbox
format. This is not a malfunction.
• My AV receiver is definitely compatible
with 96kHz Linear PCM audio, but it
doesn’t seem to work with this player.
What’s wrong?
For digital copy-protection purposes,
some 96kHz DVD discs are
automatically downsampled to 48kHz.
This is not a malfunction. With these
kinds of discs, if you want to enjoy high-
quality analog audio, set Digital Out to
Off (page 39), and 96kHz PCM Out to
96kHz (page 40).

Introduction
Most of the features described in this
chapter make use of on-screen displays. For
an explanation of how to navigate these, see
Using the on-screen displays on page 20.
Many of the functions covered in this chapter
apply to DVD discs, Video CDs, CDs and
MP3 discs, although the exact operation of
some varies slightly with the kind of disc
loaded.
Some DVD discs restrict the use of some
functions (random or repeat, for example).
This is not a malfunction.
When playing Video CDs, some of the
functions are not available during PBC
playback. If you want to use them, start the
disc playing using a number button to select
a track.
Using the Disc Navigator to
browse the contents of a disc
Use the Disc Navigator to browse through
the contents of a disc to find the part you
want to play. You can use the Disc Navigator
when a disc is playing or stopped.
1 Press SETUP and select ‘Disc Naviga-
tor’ from the on-screen display.
Alternatively, if a CD, Video CD or MP3 disc
is loaded, you can press MENU, which takes
you straight to the Disc Navigator screen.

Digital audio sources.
• Audio DRC is only effective through the
digital output when Digital Out is set to
On, and Dolby Digital Out is set to
Dolby Digital > PCM. See page 39.
• The effect of Audio DRC depends on
your speakers and AV receiver settings.
Virtual Surround
• Default setting: Off
Switch on Virtual Surround to enjoy surround
sound effects from just two speakers.
When you play a Dolby Digital soundtrack,
Virtual Dolby Digital, which uses
TruSurround technology from SRS, produces
a deep, realistic 3D soundspace from a pair
of stereo speakers.
Audio DRC
• Default setting: Off
When watching Dolby Digital DVDs at low
volume, it’s easy to lose the quieter sounds
completely—including some of the dialog.
Switching Audio DRC (Dynamic Range
Control) to On can help by bringing up the
quieter sounds, while controlling loud peaks.
How much of a difference you hear depends
on the material you’re listening to. If the
material doesn’t have wide variations in
volume, you may not notice much change.

Storing discs
Although CDs and DVD discs are more
durable than vinyl records, you should still
take care to handle and store discs correctly.
When you're not using a disc, return it to its
case and store upright. Avoid leaving discs
in excessively cold, humid, or hot environ-
ments (including under direct sunlight).
Don't glue paper or put stickers onto the
disc, or use a pencil, ball-point pen or other
sharp-tipped writing instrument. These could
all damage the disc.
For more detailed care information see the
instructions that come with discs.
Do not load more than one disc into the
player at a time.
Discs to avoid
Discs spin at high speed inside the player. If
you can see that a disc is cracked, chipped,
warped, or otherwise damaged, don't risk
using it in your player—you could end up
damaging the unit.
This unit is designed for use with conven-
tional, fully circular discs only. Use of shaped
discs is not recommended for this product.
Pioneer disclaims all liability arising in
connection with the use of shaped discs.
Taking care of your player
and discs
Handling discs
When holding discs of any type, take care
not to leave fingerprints, dirt or scratches on
the disc surface. Hold the disc by its edge or
by the center hole and edge.
Damaged or dirty discs can affect playback
performance. Take care also not to scratch
the label side of the disc. Although not as
fragile as the recorded side, scratches can
still result in a disc becoming unusable.
Should a disc become marked with finger-
prints, dust, etc., clean using a soft, dry
cloth, wiping the disc lightly from the center
to the outside edge as shown in the diagram
below.
Wipe lightly from the center of the
disc using straight strokes.
Don’t wipe the disc surface using
circular strokes.
If necessary, use a cloth soaked in alcohol,
or a commercially available CD/DVD
cleaning kit to clean a disc more thoroughly.
Never use benzine, thinner or other cleaning
agents, including products designed for
cleaning vinyl records.

En
✗ Place directly on top of an amplifier, or
other component in your stereo system
that becomes hot in use.
✗ Use near a television or monitor as you
may experience interference—especially
if the television uses an indoor antenna.
✗ Use in a kitchen or other room where
the player may be exposed to smoke or
steam.
✗ Use on a thick rug or carpet, or cover
with cloth—this may prevent proper
cooling of the unit.
✗ Place on an unstable surface, or one
that is not large enough to support all
four of the unit’s feet.
Moving the player
If you need to move the player, first press
STANDBY/ON on the front panel to turn
the player off. Wait for -OFF- to disappear
from the display, then unplug the power
cord. Never lift or move the unit during
playback—discs rotate at a high speed and
may be damaged.
Power cord caution
Handle the power cord by the plug part. Do
not pull out the plug by tugging the cord,
and never touch the power cord when your
hands are wet, as this could cause a short
circuit or electric shock. Do not place the
unit, a piece of furniture, or other object on
the power cord or pinch the cord in any other
way. Never make a knot in the cord or tie it
with other cords. The power cords should be
routed so that they are not likely to be
stepped on. A damaged power cord can
cause a fire or give you an electric shock.
Check the power cord once in a while. If you
find it damaged, ask your nearest Pioneer
authorized service center or your dealer for a
replacement.
Cleaning the pickup lens
The DVD player’s lens should not become
dirty in normal use, but if for some reason it
should malfunction due to dust or dirt,
consult your nearest Pioneer-authorized
service center. Although lens cleaners for CD
players are commercially available, we do
not recommend using them since some may
damage the lens.
Problems with condensation
Condensation may form inside the player if it
is brought into a warm room from outside, or
if the temperature of the room rises quickly.
Although the condensation won’t damage
the player, it may temporarily impair its
performance. For this reason you should
leave it to adjust to the warmer temperature
for about an hour before switching on and
using.
Hints on installation
We want you to enjoy using this unit for
years to come, so please bear in mind the
following points when choosing a suitable
location for it:
Do...
✓ Use in a well-ventilated room.
✓ Place on a solid, flat, level surface, such
as a table, shelf or stereo rack.
Don’t...
✗ Use in a place exposed to high tempera-
tures or humidity, including near
radiators and other heat-generating
appliances.
✗ Place on a window sill or other place
where the player will be exposed to
direct sunlight.
✗ Use in an excessively dusty or damp
environment.

Screen sizes and disc formats
DVD-Video discs come in several different
screen aspect ratios, ranging from TV
programs, which are generally 4:3, to
CinemaScope widescreen movies, with an
aspect ratio of up to about 7:3.
Televisions, too, come in different aspect
ratios; ‘standard’ 4:3 and widescreen 16:9.
Widescreen TV users
If you have a widescreen TV, the TV Screen
setting (page 41) of this player should be set
to 16:9 (Wide).
When you watch discs recorded in 4:3
format, you can use the TV controls to select
how the picture is presented. Your TV may
offer various zoom and stretch options; see
the instructions that came with your TV for
details.
Please note that some movie aspect ratios
are wider than 16:9, so even though you have
a widescreen TV, these discs will still play in
a ‘letterbox’ style with black bars at the top
and bottom of the screen.
Standard TV users
If you have a standard TV, the TV Screen
setting (page 41) of this player should be set
to 4:3 (Letter Box) or 4:3 (Pan&Scan),
depending on which you prefer.
Set to 4:3 (Letter Box), widescreen discs are
shown with black bars top and bottom.
Set to 4:3(Pan&Scan), widescreen discs are
shown with the left and right sides cropped.
Although the picture looks larger, you don’t
actually see the whole picture.
Please note that many widescreen discs
override the player’s settings so that the disc
is shown in letterbox format regardless of the
setting.
• Using the 16:9 (Wide) setting with a
standard 4:3 TV, or either of the 4:3
settings with a widescreen TV, will result
in a distorted picture.
Resetting the player
Use this procedure to reset all the player’s
settings to the factory default.
1 Switch the player into standby.
2 Using the front panel buttons, hold
down the 7 (stop) button and press
STANDBY/ON to switch the player
back on.
All the player’s settings are now reset, and
you should see the ‘Let’s Get Started’ screen.
